We loved Galton House. The staff were friendly, the food great and the accommodations perfect. Not a big impersonal hotel but with more space than a bed and breakfast, with lots of room to sit and relax in comfort outside of the rooms. A nice pool, well maintained gardens, little gift shop.

This guest house offered great customer service and support. The rooms were comfy and the shower was just what we needed after a long flight from London and the second time after six days on the road in Southern Namibia.

We stayed at Galton House for one night on our way north and one night on the way back. Each time Helen and all the kitchen staff were delightful. The furnishing was most attractive - modern and clean-looking, and breakfast and dinner were good. The first time we had a large room with a large bathroom, so we were disappointed... More

Spent a night here en route to Safari in Namibia. It was ideal. Clean and comfortable, 14 private suites, with a community room, dining room, and an in-ground pool. All very secure. Would happily stay there again! They served a wonderful supper and a great breakfast.

Galton House was a lovely respite between the legs of trips with Wild Dog Safaris. On our first visit, Arabella took wonderful care of us; laundry, arranging a car for us to visit a safe ATM and going so far as to lend my friend a pillow for our next leg for one night of camping. Both the dinner and... More

We stayed at Galton House for 2 nights at the start of our recent holiday in Namibia. It was everything you want from a small (boutique?) hotel: friendly helpful staff, stylish rooms, beautiful common area with sofas and books where you can chill before dinner, cool outside area with a lovely pool, delicious food. It is a short drive from... More

I found in the Galton House a very comfortable accommodation in a quiet area. Helpful and friendly staff made my stay to be be rememenbered as a very pleasant experience. The food is good - so no dinner trips to the City are necessary - the considerable distance from the Center is therefore no big disadvantage.

Pleasant quiet stop over when we arrived in Windhoek. Spent a relaxing afternoon by the small pool enjoying the sun. Room was clean and comfortable and staff were very friendly. Staff are happy to suggest places to eat and arrange taxi. Onsite secure parking and staff helpful
